In astrology, we use gemstones as remedy for certain dashas, transit, planets etc. Picking gem for astrological purpose is simple and complicated too.
There are different kind of gemstones available in market. Generally people wear birth stone according to their Sun sign, especially western people do this. But actually it is not the correct way to wear gemstones. If that sun sign ruling planet is not favorable for us then gemstone would be dangerous and can affects us badly.
Gemstones should be worn only after overall analysis of horoscope and picking the most favorable planet. Choose planet which favorable but weak and not delivering the desired results. Many people wear gemstones of 1,5 and 9 house rulers, which is good in most cases but not every. Strengthening any planet which is already in a good strength is waste and it can harm also.
For ex. Someone’s 10th lord is well placed but weak in strength then 10th lord stone can be worn and career problems can be reduced.
Actually gemstones don’t work as great for everyone, because of difference of energies. Gemstones only work up to 10 – 20%. So, when someone is at 85-95% with their ordinary actions(energies)then gemstones works excellent and when someone is at 60-70% then it won’t work as great but will help a bit only.
Planets and their respective gemstones:
These gemstones receive their correspondent radiation from the corresponding planet and allows a particular type of energy to pass through our body, through which we feel the self improvement.
Gemstones receive the cosmic energies of the planets in the form of color-coded frequencies through our solar system and infuse it into our body through a ring or pendant.
Gemstones should always be used of positive and favorable planets and worn on right hand or in pendant only. Because gemstones only amplifies the energy of the planets. But for suppose any planet is partially benefic and malefic too, and also holds some very important energies of life then it should be worn in left hand only.
Right hand is ruled by Jupiter, increasing of life force whereas left hand is by Venus means decreasing of life force.
Note: Wearing gemstones for partially malefic in left hand is exceptional case and should be advised by any expert astrologer after complete horoscope analysis.
There is another big misconception of male and female hand’s: Male and female both should wear favorable planet gemstone in right hand only. No left-hand theory is there, this is my research and experience. Left hand should be used only for partially malefic ones.
Some more points:
- Never wear stone of planet which is inimical to lagna lord, at least temporal friendship should be there. Never wear Blue Sapphire if Saturn is in watery sign it can affect one emotionally or leads to mental unbalances after all good results, wear substitute gem of Saturn in this case.
- Use opal for Venus if it is placed in moksha trikona.
- Pitambari neelam should be worn if Saturn and Jupiter energies have some link in horoscope.
- Khuni neelam should be worn if Saturn and Mars energies are linked or Saturn is in Aquarius or Capricorn.
- Rahu-Ketu stones should be only used temporarily.
Note: It’s a request to all readers that please wear gemstones after consulting any learned astrologer.
